Deborah Baldini, a 30-year veteran and life-long student of the financial markets, is founder and president of Baldini Investment Strategies, an independent practice providing innovative wealth, retirement and investment strategies for clients seeking to manage and preserve their wealth. Deborah is committed to helping her clients achieve the life they have always wanted through the prudent management of their financial resources.
Deborah has more than 30 years of experience in the financial services industry. She has drawn on her extensive background and experience in capital markets, technical analysis, and discretionary portfolio management to create a proprietary investment process that is designed to adapt to changes in market conditions in a systematic and disciplined way, potentially giving clients the confidence to stay the course and steer clear of the emotional minefields of fear and greed.
Before founding Baldini Investment Strategies in 2013, Deborah spent 20 years at Prudential Securities, working her way up from Margin Clerk, to Operations Manager, to Assistant Vice President, to Financial Advisor. She spent 9 years at RBC Dain Rauscher where she held the title Vice President-Investments before joining Raymond James in 2008. She holds the Series 7, 8, 63 and 65 licenses and has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Tulane University and a Master of Arts degree in Italian Language and Literature from UCLA.
Deborah lives her core values of compassion, kindness and service to those in need on a daily basis as she cares for her disabled adult daughter and her daughter’s best friend, both of whom require assistance to be able to live on their own. Over the years she has been a fierce advocate for both girls and is well-versed in the laws governing both the Arizona mental health system and federal disability benefits. Her husband Ken shares her same values which he puts to good use working with autistic children and children with a history of trauma, abuse and neglect as a Senior Behavior Management Specialist with Arizona’s Children Association.
Deborah was born and raised in Ohio. After attending university in New Orleans, Rome, Italy, and Los Angeles, she moved to Tempe, Arizona in 1978. She and Ken have three children, Micol, Robert, and Alia, one grandchild, and one on the way. Deborah enjoys the arts, crafts, foreign languages and cultures, mountains, beaches, hiking, reading, learning new things, and spending time with family.
